A divided Supreme Court stopped Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative court’s views on abortion rights.
The justices said by a 5-4 vote late Thursday that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined the court’s four liberals in putting a hold on the law, pending a full review of the case.
President Trump’s two Supreme Court appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, were among the four conservative members of the court who would have allowed the law to take effect.
Kavanaugh wrote a dissenting opinion in which he said the court’s action was premature because the state had made clear it would allow abortion providers an additional 45 days to obtain admitting privileges before it started enforcing the law.
Dear Baton Rouge, Mr. Roberts has made his ruling, now let him enforce it.
And, Allen Stevo has more on the connections between Coonman, the KKK, and Rehashed Nazi Eugenics, Inc.
Virtually anyone who has done an in depth and wide survey of the most influential American political writing of the past century, knows the strong encouragement that Eastern seaboard intellectuals have shown for both eugenics and abortion, that eugenics and abortion are both firmly at the root of the vast social engineering projects that stem from the progressive worldview, and which today get recycled and deceptively dressed up for the poorly read with well tested talking points. Of course eugenics isn’t openly paraded around because it is no longer a popular view, but eugenics remain at the intellectual foundation of progressivism.
The 21st century talking points around abortion being a civil right may sound wonderful and loving, the intellectual root of the ideas are horrifying.
Margaret Sanger herself, founder of Planned Parenthood didn’t don a faux Klan outfit in some goofy yearbook photo. Instead, according to her autobiography she spoke to the “women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey,” likely about the virtues of birth control for whitening and purifying the American population, as was an important topic for her. It was such an important topic that she started her “Negro Project” in 1939 to get black Americans onboard with their own population control, just as German racists were ramping up population control initiatives across the Atlantic. Such an important topic that in 1922, she placed notorious racist writer and Klansman Lothrop Stoddard on the founding six member board of directors for the birth control organization that later became known as Planned Parenthood.
